Lobby assault last week

A friend of Mission Mission writes in to tell us that her partner was assaulted last week, allegedly by the man in this still from their lobby’s security camera.

They explain:

“WANTED FOR ASSAULT: WED. 10/30 9:16PM This man stalked me home into my apartment lobby and punched me in the head and jaw several times after I brushed by him at 18th and Valencia as he was standing in the crowded street looking at his phone. The last thing he said was “I know where you live!” Caucasian, 5′ 10″, 30-35, 170-180 lbs, short dark hair. He was wearing a tan or gray sweater and blue jeans. If anyone has any information on this attack please call the SFPD: (415) 558-5400, case #130922883. Flyers will be going up all over town….”

Man vs. 14 Mission vs. being punched in face

It’s an age-old question: is it faster to walk or take the 14 Mission bus? Duh, bike. But suppose your bike is in the shop or something… tough call. One Examiner reporter hoped to answer this with a good old-fashioned foot race.

I won’t spoil the ending, but it’s a close one and there is a face punch involved. Was it still worth saving the $2 fare? Probably. Read on at the Examiner.
